Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful day. It’s finally Friday. We all managed to survive another week. There’s only a few days left in February. I’m looking forward to March. I’m hoping it’s going to be a mild spring-like month.
Boy oh boy have I had a great day. I sort of had a plan of action in my head for today. All too often, I plan things and nothing goes according to plan. Today kind of went according to plan. After getting thru my morning routine I disappeared into my sewing room to work on my Dresden Plate quilt. I did a bit of this …..
And a bit of that …..
Then I switched to a bit of this …..
And on and on …..
I can’t believe that I’m turning this flat quilt top …..
Into this textured quilt …..
You’d think after all the years that I have been longarm quilting that I would know how a quilt can be transformed into something pretty good. This Dresden quilt is my own design. I worried that perhaps I had left too many negative spaces. A negative space is a place where there is too much plain background. And because there was quite a lot of negative space, I decided to give this quilt a custom quilting job. I’m keeping it all simple. I’ve chosen circles, melon and curve shapes to go with the meandering fill pattern. The places that don’t have any stitching pop and create texture. I can’t wait to see how this quilt looks once the quilting is done. I’m very excited about this one because I’m loving the look already. I got approximately 1/3 of the quilting done today. I’ll be going back to it on Monday.
Working on my Dresden quilt was a great way to end the week. I’ve been mainly hiding in my sewing room which is in the back of the house while all the action was out front. My neighbour but one moved out earlier this week and today a new family have moved in. I missed all the action!!! I wish my new neighbours all the best in their new home.
So, that’s my report for today. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I heard that we’ll have to wrap up warm if we’re heading out over the next few days. The weatherman has warned that the weather is going to turn very cold and we’re expecting snow. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching.
